Do you like pork? Banana peppers/pepperoncini peppers? Potatoes? Then try this recipe (another huge thanks to Peter Bocchieri for this one. Here’s the link to his blog: http://blogs.dailyrecord.com/italianfood/2010/09/14/pork-chops-with-vinegar-peppers-and-potatoes/)
What you need:
* 3-4 pork loin chops, bone in
* 1/2 cup all purpose flour
* 1/4 cup olive oil
* 3 cloves garlic, sliced
* 2 cups of mild or hot peppers in vinegar (I use mild)
* 1/2 cup of vinegar from the jar of peppers
* 3 fresh basil leaves
* 2 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced thin
*salt & pepper to taste
First, we make potatoes. Wash, peel and slice those suckers, get your olive oil really hot (on a medium heat), then throw the slices in the oil. Turn them when they’re golden brown, and put them on a plate with a paper towel. Set aside.
Put more oil in your pan, and heat it on medium heat. While that heats up, rinse your pork chops and then season each side with salt and pepper. After that, dredge your pork through the flour, shaking off any excess. Throw those babies in your oil.
Cook the chops about 3 minutes, then turn them over. Add your sliced garlic and shake the pan to make everything is nice and even.
Cook for another minute, then add your peppers (just the peppers, save the vinegar for later) and turn the pork chops with the peppers for 2 minutes.
Add the vinegar and basil leaves, and keep cooking until the pork chops are done (mine are usually done at this point)
Put the contents of the pan on a plate, and throw the potatoes on top. Don’t forget to slice up some Italian bread and mop up those juices and peppers!
This is a delicious recipe! I’ve made it twice already!
